    Bit of both or a bit of neither, that's why she's in pop!

    Great album. Better than Adele's overall (which I love). Need to play it a lot more

    Have you heard 'Distant Dreamer', from her
    Album? There is a clip of the Song on YouTube.

    It sounds like a 1960's Phil Spector Record
    - and is a big ballad, that builds & builds.

    It lasts for over 5 Minutes. It is 'Pure Pop',
    as regards a Genre - she is very, very vesatile.

    I think that 'Distant Dreamer' can be a huge
    Hit Single too.

    This is a great debut album, the songs are very good.
    The closing track "Distant Dreamer" is fantastic.
    I absolutely love this one, "Warwick Avenue", and "Rockferry" especially, but most of the songs are good.

    NOT on her Album - but very beautiful.

    Duffy won the Welsh version of the X Factor,
    & recorded some Songs in Welsh. One is called
    'Hedfan Angel', & it sounds like ABBA in parts
    of the Music, (the Flutes), & a Eurovision
    Ballad, over all.

    Here is a Link to it:,

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=leiPemYDg-8

    I think it is lovely.....

    Absolutely love this album. Rockferry, Mercy, Stepping Stone, Warwick Avenue, Syrup & Honey and Hanging on Too Long are all really great songs. Brilliant album and an incredible voice.

    I'd say this is definitley a soul album, she's got that Dusty Springfield/sixties soul vibe going on!

    AND I have to say - this is probably the best album I've heard in a while... it's just awesome! Although I really like Adele, this album is DEFINITELY better.

    Favourites have to be:

    Warwick Avenue
    Hanging On Too Long (My favourite)
    Mercy
    Delayed Devotion
    Distant Dreamer

    That was really hard considering the album is only 10 tracks, I didn't want to list the whole thing!

    My single choices:

    1. Rockferry
    2. Mercy
    3. Warwick Avenue
    4. Hanging On Too Long
    5. Delayed Devotion

    No topic should be without a cover + tracklist

    On Sunday, Duffy will become only the 10th
    Female Solo Act to Top BOTH UK Charts in the
    same Week - the Singles & Albums Charts.

    And only the 2nd BRITISH Solo Female to ever
    manage it - Leona Lewis was the first.

    This is in almost 52 Years of the UK Album Chart.
    (It began on July 28th 1956).

    Only 10 Solo Females have managed to Top both
    UK Charts in the same Week:,

    Barbra Streisand (1980), Madonna (1986, 1989,
    & 2005), Whitney Houston (1987), Mariah Carey (1994),
    Celine Dion (1995), Kylie Minogue (2001),
    Beyonce Knowles (2003), Rihanna (2007), Leona
    Lewis (2007), & Duffy (2008).

    Madonna is the only one to have done it more than
    once - 3 times, & Celine Dion is the only one to
    manage it for as long as 5 Weeks in a row....

    Fantastic album, love it more than Adele's already!

    For me, it's a big whiff of Gabrielle, a sprinkle of Dusty Springfield and a hint of Amy Winehouse and Adele.

    Apart from "Rockferry" and "Mercy" I love "Distant Dreamer" (what a great closing track), "Delayed Devotion" (god I love the Motown feel and the strings!), "Stepping Stone" and "Warwick Avenue"... but there is not one bad track!

    You are so right about the Gabrielle part.
